Von Willebrand disease (vWD) is an inherited bleeding disorder like hemophilia. It is caused by a defect or deficiency of a blood-clotting protein, called the von Willebrand factor. The von Willebrand factor is essential for the beginning stages of clotting and acts like glue to help the platelets stick together and form a blood clot.
